Write Your Logline: Script Frenzy Tip #8

If you can’t explain your script in a concise few sentences (or logline), then you will have a hard time keeping the story under control. Write a logline before you take the next step.

To help all the aspiring screenwriters, comic book writers, and playwrights participating in the Script Frenzy writing marathon, we will feature a new script writing tool or tip every day this month. Read all the advice at this link.
